Milton Oliver joins us for the second time this year, again providing us with a different voice and perspective as somebody having walked in the gifts of the Spirit for many years. Milton offers an important reminder for what it means to be “crucified with Christ”, that our flesh has been put to death and our spirits raised to life with Him. Are we people living out of flesh or spirit?
This is the third and final sermon of a 3-part series on power.
Kneeling and power are deeply connected. As we learn to kneel before King Jesus in weakness and in strength, we posture ourselves to receive more of the Spirit’s power in our lives.
This is the second sermon of a 3-part series on power.
Power is unequal and we need to engage in power from a position of both strength and weakness. Looking to Psalm 72 and Psalm 73 that offer differing perspectives on power, we see that in strength, power is redeemed when we look to Jesus and pour ourselves out, and in weakness power is redeemed when we look to Jesus and bless the powerful. Both perspectives offer an invitation to acknowledge the power that God has given, and pour it out!
This is the first sermon of a 3-part series on power.
Power is a gift designed by God for human flourishing, yet for many of us, we see power as a dirty word. It is critical that we redefine our cultural understandings of power in order to move in the power of the Holy Spirit.
